When it became clear that I was out powered I called in the help of my power animals to guide me. They suggested that I call on assistance from allies in the North, which I did so immediately, and I very quickly found myself standing in a circle with many other white clad beings. They showed me how to sing to these spirits and breathe out onto them to freeze them deeply and solidly. This process took quite some time because the energy of these spirits was being changed from a plastic state to a crystalline state. Once they were in the crystalline state, my spirit allies reminded me of the big stick that I had brought with me this weekend and prepared for the hunt.
With the allies help I raised the stick high above my head and brought it down on the newly crystallized energy and watched it shatter into billions of tiny crystals. As I recall this, I remember that as I watched the crystalline explosion it seemed to happen in slow motion – very cold matter usually moves at very slow speeds. After the dust had settled we all swept them up with brooms and dustpans that my northern friends had brought along for just such a purpose. As I was sweeping I wondered what we were going to do with them next so that they didn’t just find their way back to one another and return to their original form.
The answer to my query came quickly. My northern friends led the way, and one by one the pans full of crystals were carried over to the water’s edge and gently sprinkled into the water as food for the salmon. In Celtic lore, salmon is one of the oldest and wisest creatures, and I had no doubt that as salmon consumed these crystals a transformation to a more balanced state would occur. That part of the battle was over and I bid farewell and great gratitude to my northern allies for the smart strength that they shared with me.
The most surprising effect laughter has is on the immune system. Laughing stimulates the activity of killer T-cells and improves their numbers, making them more aggressive in fighting viruses and some types of cancer. Laughter seems to be the trigger that turn all kinds of T-cells on.IgA (Immunoglobulin A), an antibody that fights upper respiratory infections is increased by laughing. Gamma interferon, IgB (immunoglobulin)and Complement 3 are amped up also by laughing. The residual effects of laughing last into the next day. Good news for this cold, flu-fighting weather.
